During the Longines Grand Prix, through the activity “Longines Clear the Jump” organized by JustWorld International, 200 meals were offered every time the Longines jumps were cleared. Thanks to this action, Longines could contribute to offer 5’000 meals to the young people helped by JustWorld. In 2016, Longines has provided 65’000 meals to children benefiting from JustWorld projects through this action.
Longines also lent its name to another highlight of the weekend, the Longines Speed Challenge. This trial known as the fastest in the world was won by Kevin Staut on Elky van het Indihof. On Saturday evening, the Swiss watch brand participated in the charity Pro-am competition with two teams. Longines Ambassador of Elegance Jane Richard Philips and Nina Mallevaey competed for the charity organization JustWorld International while Pénélope Leprevost and her daughter Eden rode for Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque Enfants du Monde.
Longines also presented the Official Watch of the event, a new model of The Longines Equestrian Collection, a line inspired by Longines’ passion for equestrian sports.
